According to American crime news report Pakistan intelligence Agency ISI has been declared as the best intelligence agency of the world. It is these Americans who call ISI the best even better than their own CIA and they are also the ones trying to deface it.

The best of all. She is the master of spy world with most effective operations with no match.
Even the MI (Military Intelligence of Pakistan is better than other agencies in the list)

CIA officials have said it is the best. They do everything hushed up and place moles in other intellgeince agencies. They have very good planning and most missions suceed. They have also broke the Soviet union along with CIA

2 Italy Italy (Italian: Repubblica Italiana) is a sovereign state and unitary parliamentary republic in south-central Europe.

We have both IB and RAW for our both internal and external protections. No one can even touch us. I just want to know the name of one who called us the cowards. I just pray the god to make your foolishness to get disappeared. It's the land where science is born and it's the place where the first wars of this world are mostly done. Our kings used to have spy system through out the nation even since the centuries before B.C.

I think the list says "Countries with Best Intelligence Agencies." I think India's place is justified since our internal intelligence agencies (like IB) are crappy. Only the R&AW (Sad, it's corrupted too.) and the DIA are the better ones in my opinion.
